The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die is a British historical drama film directed by Edward Bazalgette, written by Martha Hillier, and based on the The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell. It is a sequel to the The Last Kingdom television series. Alexander Dreymon reprised his role as Uhtred of Bebbanburg.
It was released by Netflix on 14 April 2023. It is intended to act as the conclusion to the series and the story.
Producer Nigel Marchant revealed that talks about a movie had been proceeding following the launch of The Last Kingdom’s fourth season in April 2020. In October 2021, prior to the fifth season of The Last Kingdom being released on Netflix in early 2022, the feature length sequel to the series was announced at the London MCM Comic-Con by Dreymon, who acted as executive producer as well as starring as Uhtred on the show. It was given the working title Seven Kings Must Die and would follow events of the series which took place over a circa-45 year period of history from 866 onwards focusing on the Kingdom of Wessex and ongoing Viking incursions into England.
The screenplay for Seven Kings Must Die was written by Martha Hillier with direction by Ed Bazalgette and production by Marchant, Gareth Neame and Mat Chaplin. Alongside Dreymon, Hillier also served as executive producer. It was produced by Carnival Films and distributed worldwide by NBCUniversal International Distribution. Principal photography began in Budapest in January 2022, and wrapped by the end of March 2022.
Characters missing from the film that were in the series included Lady Aelswith (Eliza Butterworth), King Edward (Timothy Innes) and Lady Aelfwynn (Phia Saban), and Uhtred’s children Stiorra (Ruby Hartley) and Young Uhtred (Finn Elliot) this is because of the condensed running time from the change in format. Screenwriter Martha Hillier said it was “heartbreaking…because I absolutely love all of them…we couldn’t service all the characters…it’s a much more single protagonist story”.
